Dalleh Dates Jar

Commissioned by Her Highness Sheikha Latifa Bint Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairperson of the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture).

In her generous nature, Her Highness gifted this special design to a selection of people in celebration of Eid AlAdha.

The gift is inspired by one of the artifacts displayed at the Dubai Museum. It consists of a wooden lid that is hand-carved in the shape of a Dalleh (a traditional coffee pot) and is designed to highlight the rich Emirati history and hospitality.

To compliment the Dalleh design, the acrylic base in the gift was filled with layers of dates sourced from local farms in the United Arab Emirates.
